Self-Testing Iron-related Bacteria
Test your drinking water for the presence of iron-related bacteria with this at-home self-testing kit. Iron-related bacteria is a common cause of metallic tasting water, yellow or brown colored water, black buildup on fixtures and plumbing. It can also be a useful added for those with corroded pipes. Iron-related bacteria are not typically harmful and very common, but can lead to an array of nuisance and aesthetic (taste, color, odor) issues.
Important: This at-home test kit should be ordered as an addition to a laboratory test package (i.e. Core Kit: Essential, Advanced, or Extended package). Results from lab testing are often very important towards making sense of self-testing kit results.
